Surrey County Council - Surrey

Waste and Recycling

Waste and waste management are important issues here in Surrey. We currently generate more than 580,000 tonnes of household waste per year in Surrey alone. That is not including waste from shops, offices or other business, or from construction or agriculture.

The main way we are seeking to bring this figure down is to encourage the reduce, reuse and recycling principles. The overall recycling rate for Surrey as a county is 24% which is above the national average but below what we could achieve.

The County Council has several roles in waste management and recycling, it owns the community recycling centres (or the tips) as well as landfill space. It is also responsible for the disposal of waste brought to it by the local councils. This it undertakes via a 25 year contract with Surrey Waste Management Limited.
.
To enable the County Council to give clear direction and focus to the management of our county's waste, a Waste Policy Statement has been issued.

Elsewhere in the Council officers have prepared the Surrey Waste Plan that investigates the need for waste management facilities in Surrey to meet our waste disposal requirements.
